Watertown-Mayer vs.

New London-Spicer

7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 1


New London-Spicer is entering unfamiliar territory. After winning just 10 matches each of the past three seasons, the No. 9-2A Wildcats have already notched 20 wins this fall and have a realistic chance at a Wright County Conference West Division championship.

How the Wildcats (21-1, 3-0) fare Tuesday against No. 8-2A Watertown-Mayer will have a big impact on the conference race, and New London-Spicer coach Erin Schoumaker said her team is excited to have the opportunity.

Schoumaker said the offense, directed by setters Sophia Austvold and Presley Arndt-Callenius, is the Wildcats’ strength. Hitters Ashlyn Olson and Aleah Zieske are the top weapons.

Watertown-Mayer (17-5, 4-0) has spent most of the season in the top-10 rankings and will be a tough opponent. Sisters Paige and Kate Thibault are capable of dominating performances at the net.
